Wearable sensors can enhance the relationship between professional downhill skiers and their trainers by revealing information about the athlete's motions--such as force, rotation, or acceleration--that are difficult or impossible for the trainer to observe or quantify. Visualization software lets users visualize and synchronize a recorded video with the wearable-sensor data. The authors ran several real-world tests using a prototype system and interviewed ski trainers about their impressions and suggestions for improving the system.

This article is part of a special issue on pervasive computing in sports.
